Disney has announced that marvel alumni Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan will star in a planned miniseries, set to debut on the Disney Play streaming platform. Variety has reported that "Empire," writer Malcolm Spellman was picked up to write the limited series that would feature the pair of Marvel characters.

This series is the third to be confirmed by Disney, which has announced that both Tom Hiddleston and Elizabeth Olsen will have their own miniseries [VIDEO] exclusively on the Disney streaming platform, which is scheduled to be released in late 2019.

Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige is overseeing the upcoming miniseries and is wanting to dig into the stories of the popular characters, who have not been given their own franchises.

Newest miniseries features Falcon and Winter Soldier

This includes the Falcon and Winter Soldier played by Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan, in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The two characters recently appeared together in the box office blockbuster "Avengers: Infinity War." Disney has not released any details about the planned miniseries.

The Winter Soldier was a key character in the second "Captain America," film and first appeared in the original "Captain America," film as Bucky Barnes. Falcon, made his debut in "Captain America: The Winter Soldier." In contrast to the Marvel shows offered on Netflix, such as "Daredevil," and "The Punisher," the miniseries will be helmed directly by Marvel Studios and Kevin Feige. Comic Book has said that the shows will have large budgets similar to Marvel's films.

Netflix starting to cancel Marvel-based series

Disney's news comes as Netflix decided to cancel "Iron Fist," and "Luke Cage," which managed to run for two seasons. Netflix has confirmed that they renewed "Jessica Jones," for the third season. "Daredevil" just launched its third season. Slash Film has said that they believe The Vision will appear in the upcoming miniseries, meaning he could potentially be tied into the Scarlet Witch.

Along with these limited series, Disney has confirmed a live-action Star Wars series, which is said to have a production budget of nearly $100 million. The streaming platform will launch next year and will house Disney's massive library of content, including Marvel, Star Wars content, as well as a number of Disney classics. Fans will now have to wait and see if any other Marvel characters will get their own miniseries.

There are a number of characters that would make a great miniseries, such as Nick Fury, or even Black Widow.
